The Tree of Love is represented by two trees – a pine and an oak joined with one another by the trunks. Both trees are approximately of the same age – about 100 years old. The height of the trees is 26 m while the trunks are about 30 cm thick. Biologists suppose that the story of this united wonder-tree started after one nurseling was brought to another one with the moved soil, possibly, after the spring tide or heavy rains. Traditionally, the oak, being a pedunculate tree, is believed to symbolyze the masculinity while a pine, Vatereri genus, - with femininity. These trees grow as if hugging each other with their branches and roots. A few meters above the ground the trees give out their oldest branch. This branch is considered to be „the daughter“ of the two trees.
